DENVER – After leading Johnson & Wales men's basketball to its best start in program history, Quintin Grogan has been named HoopDirt.com's Division III Coach of the Week.

Now in his sixth season leading the Wildcats, Grogan guided JWU to wins over George Fox and UT Tyler over the weekend at the Rocky Mountain Thanksgiving Classic. With the two victories, the Wildcats are now 4-0 for the first time ever.

The team's four-game win streak is the longest since winning 11 in a row during the 2016-17 campaign.

The Wildcats are the lone unbeaten team remaining in the SCAC and lead the conference in scoring (91.5 ppg), scoring margin (10.8), free throw percentage (78.5), field goal percentage (47.0), opponent 3-point percentage (24.2) and turnover margin (5.0).

After four neutral site games to begin the season, the undefeated Wildcats host Whittier (1-3) on Saturday at 4 p.m. in their home opener at the Wildcat Center. JWU then hosts UC Santa Cruz (3-2) on Sunday at noon.
